I have to say, for an all-in-one tool, it does its job pretty well. It has a shaper on one end, a scuffer on the other, and it unscrews in the middle to expose the sharp points.

It takes a second to unscrew, rather than just pulling a lid off like the TipPik, and it's a little thicker than a standard TipPik but still fits in the small pocket of your case just fine. I wouldn't carry it in your pocket because of its shape/size, but all in all, not too bad.
as my header says I sell Both and I sell what is the cheapest at the time,mostly-oh yeah for a few dollars more you can get a screw on cap (yes Virgina there is a Santa Clause) but that is not worth between $13 and 24
but for the rigjht price you can get anything

Once the tip is trimmed with a blade you still will need to sand it with several grades of fine sandpaper to make it smooth before burnishing it otherwise it can fray or if it's a layered tip the layers can separate. I am trying to create a tool that does it all but there are so many factors (Such as replaceable blades, making it accommodate various size tips, different tip thickness etc.) it is a difficult task.
I know I'm a little late to this party, but how is it going with the tool?

Permanent grit usually isn't too "permanent" and seems to clog with leather "build-up" and or gets dull over time. Most people love the Ultimate tool but don't love to replace the sandpaper. What are the things that bother you most about the current tip shapers on the market? The more feedback I get the better tools we can develop. I currently have tools that use sandpaper and or have machined "teeth" for shaping. If a company that sold these tools supplied extra sandpapers with each tool would that help? Maybe a supply of free sandpapers allotted to each dealer to give away to people that buy these tools from their stores? I know as a retail store owner I will gladly give every one of you free sandpaper inserts just to get you to walk into my store! Please feel free to comment or PM me. All feedback is welcome...good and bad! Help me help you! THANKS
I'm new to all of this pool cue tip stuff, but not to engineering and metalworking. I'm rather fascinated with tool and fixture design and fabrication.

I took a look at your website and I'm impressed with your tools! I like Cube2, and that I'd get a RAW-Q Shaper free with my order. Combine that with the SHAFT-M8 conditioner and you have quite a package!

I carry this one for scuffing and picking, and the old trusty Willards for shaping.
